“What is the purpose of life?…….To be the eyes and ears and conscience of the Creator of the Universe, you fool.” Breakfast of Champions, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
Working predominantly with the figure, I want to express my perception of the timeless beauty and ugliness that is ever present in all of humanity. I’d like to somehow preserve the sanctity and trauma of childhood and the magic that enveloped it all. I made a conscious decision somewhere in the transition from child to adult that I would not lose insight into myself; I vowed to always look, always feel, always pay attention to the secret messages in my day to day life….even if they are only conjured up in my imagination. I am constantly aware of the isolation of the human condition, the decay of our society in general, and the bittersweet taste of childhood that comes and goes with memories that seem more real, at times, than today. All my work represents me, my point of view the world, and along with that comes the reflections the viewer brings with his or herself.
